LogMeIn Launches Mobile Plug-in for Linux

New Functionality for LogMeIn Free and LogMeIn Pro Gives Nokia Tablet N800 and N810 users Remote Access Capabilities
Woburn, Mass., July 31, 2008 - LogMeIn announced today a new plug in available for Linux-based Nokia N800 and N810 devices, enabling users to remotely access and control their Windows PCs or Macs using LogMeIn Free or LogMeIn Pro.

The new plug in is LogMeIn's first step towards working on all Linux-based netbooks, tablets and MIDs. LogMeIn can already be used by Windows and Windows CE-based internet enabled devices.

"As internet devices continue to evolve, screens get larger and connectivity gets faster, the ability to access "full" computers remotely becomes a killer app," said Marton Anka, CTO, LogMeIn, Inc. "We believe small portable devices ranging from mobile phones to subnotebooks will be increasingly used as advanced productivity devices, and by enabling those devices to reach host computers, they become even more useful. These mobile devices lack the computing resources of a powerful desktop PC, but via remote access, the user of a mobile device does not need to be limited by a slow CPU and the lack of storage."

The plugin is available now on the LogMeIn Labs page (https://secure.logmein.com/labs.asp).

LogMeIn Free is a free service that provides fast, secure and easy access to a remote computer from virtually any web-enabled PC or Pocket PC with a high-speed Internet connection. Users obtain on-demand access to their work and home computers-viewing desktops, files and network resources-[regardless of where they are. Many users worldwide use LogMeIn Free as both a professional and personal remote computer support tool.

LogMeIn Pro
provides mobile professionals with the same fast, secure and easy remote access to their business or home computers as LogMeIn Free, but with the added productivity benefits of drag and drop file transfer, remote to local sound, remote printing, large file sharing and mini meeting features.
LogMeIn employs [state-of-the-art-security with 128-to-256 bit SSL encryption to prevent unauthorized access.
